IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
September 24, 2012
CARL LEE CALLEGARI,
C. BURNETT, ET AL.,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gary S. Austin United States Magistrate Judge
ORDER TRANSFERRING CASE TO THE SACRAMENTO DIVISION OF THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
Plaintiff, a state prisoner proceeding pro se, has filed a civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Plaintiff has consented to magistrate judge jurisdiction pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(c)(1).
In his June 14, 2012, first amended complaint, Plaintiff alleges violations of his civil rights by defendants. The named defendants are employed by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation at California State Prison Sacramento. The alleged violations took place in Sacramento County, which is part of the Sacramento Division of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California. Therefore, the complaint should have been filed in the Sacramento Division.
Pursuant to Local Rule 120(f), a civil action which has not been commenced in the proper court may, on the court's own motion, be transferred to the proper court. Therefore, this action will be transferred to the Sacramento Division.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. This action is transferred to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California sitting in Sacramento; and
2. All future filings shall refer to the new Sacramento case number assigned and shall be filed at: United States District Court Eastern District of California 501 "I" Street, Suite 4-200 Sacramento, CA 95814
IT IS SO ORDERED.
